What is CNP Prince
The CNP Prince was created as fan art for the CryptoNinja Partners(CNP), the no. 1 generative collection in Japan. Based on the personifications of the original four CNP characters, the team created idol-like characters that would appeal to women.
Oshi-katsu (推し活)literally means supporting activity in Japanese. This term is used to describe an act of support for someone you are a big fan of, and has a connotation similar to the English words “fave” (favorite) or “stan” (devoted fan). The idea of Oshi-katsu has become particularly popular among adult women in Japan, who support their favorite singers, actors and even manga characters by attending events, buying merchandise and voicing their support.
Oshi-katsu is viewed positively in Japanese culture, as it is believed that engaging in these activities can promote mental well-being and create a bond between fans.
With this idea of “Oshi-katsu” in mind, these four good-looking idol-like characters were created.
CNP Prince is a unique collection where owners can participate in “Oshi-katsu” by choosing their favorite character through NFT art.
The Team Behind CNP Prince
Tuppy is a creator known for her 3D avatar music videos.
Cotaex is a professional manga artist with experience in publishing manga comics in Japan. She’s been in the NFT space since 2021, providing art for manga and storybooks for NinjaDAO, the most influential NFT community in Japan.
“By personifying CNP, I want to give each character a personality and appearance that will allow the holder to enjoy the “Oshi-katu” activity,” said Cotaex. The NFT will also have the voice of each character, providing distinctive stories.

Cotaex’s art has attracted a group of NFT collectors who have already begun to participate in Oshi-katsu activities by creating fan art, including cosplay.

“We are creating a welcoming, vibrant and fun community where our holders feel safe and connected through this unique activity of Oshi-katsu,” commented Tuppy. “Although our main target group is women, we have several male members on our team to ensure that everyone can enjoy being part of our community.”
Please note that the project has its own channel within the NinjaDAO community.
CNP Prince: Roadmap
The team plans to release the first 5000 NFTs with two characters. The other two characters will be released later (dates TBA).
Once the entire collection is released, the team plans to use the NFT exchange mechanism to introduce more characters.
“Every time a new character is introduced to the CNP project, we can create a new CNP Prince character through its personification,” said Tuppy. “Cotaex is a genius at creating an attractive male character that is ideal for Oshi-katsu. I know our collection will continue to bring new excitement to our owners.”
Although still in discussion, the team also plans to create mechanized items and visual novel games.
